Iranian Physicist Wins OIC Scientific Prize

Saturday, April 19, 2008

The annual physics prize of the Organization of the Islamic Conference’s Standing Committee on Scientific and Technological Cooperation (COMSTECH) has been won by Dr. Mohammad Mehdi Sheikh Jabbari, a young Iranian physicist who works with the Institute for Studies in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics.

The prize was awarded during the 13th meeting of general assembly of the committee in Islamabad, Pakistan, which was attended by ministers of science and research of Islamic countries. The prize was given to him by Pakistani president, Parvez Musharraf.

Dr. Sheikh Jabbari is a young professor with the Institute for Studies in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics. In 2007, he won a prize from the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics for his work in non-commutative theories of D-branes and super-strings, which will result in interesting achievements in theoretical physics and mathematics.

He has graduated from a master’s degree course in physics from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran. Less than three years later, he obtained a doctorate in physics from the same university. Sheikh Jabbari has written dozens of papers which have been cited more than 100 times, which has no parallel among Iranian scientists. After finishing his doctorate course at Sharif University of Technology, he spent a two-year post-doctorate research course at the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. Then he was engaged in research activities at University of Stanford for a few years. He returned to Iran at an age of 30 and started to work as a professor at Institute for Studies in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics in Tehran.

Scientists like Sheikh Jabbari can be a source of inspiration for all Iranian researchers and scientists.
